But first we need to get you 'up and doing' again. Beating laziness is a necessary part of getting yourself out of the disenchantment stage.
Laziness can have a variety of causes. In most cases, the task that needs to be completed isn't enjoyable. Or you lack inspiration. Mowing the grass when it's 90 degrees outside is a good example of both.
Dealing with laziness is an important self-management skill. Getting things done when you don't feel like doing them is practically a superpower. It makes you unstoppable.
Here are some tips for beating laziness, getting yourself up and doing again and starting to accomplish more each day:
1. Take frequent, short breaks. Tell yourself that you'll work on a project or task for 25 minutes and then take a quick break. Focus with all your might for those 25 minutes, and then relax for five.
2. Be tough with yourself. Getting started requires the most willpower. Once you've started, it's easy to keep going. Grind your way through the first few minutes and then use the momentum to your advantage.
